The Mind and Matter research area at the University of Helsinki organises a series of public lectures on topics related to AI, digitalisation, and the human mind.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming influential throughout technological society, from transport to healthcare, civil engineering to personal electronics. But, what kind of intelligence does our AI possess?
AI pioneer Judea Pearl has said that the state of the art of modern AI is just very sophisticated fitting of curves to data. Can this give us the intelligent machines we would wish to have? Artificial cognitive systems that support human cognition, and extend thinking beyond human limitations – in short, human-compatible AI. In order to chart a course towards AI with true intelligence, an AI that is relatable and can be asked to understand us, its users, we must study humans and AI together. The talks in this seminar focus on the study of learning in humans and AI together, interacting in cooperation or competition.
Benjamin Cowley, Associate Professor in AI in Learning and Education:
